New Gig Poster, For a Postponed Gig.

by ncwinters on March 27, 2020

Strange times indeed.

Have been trying to figure out how to formulate a response to the current pandemic situation, and keep coming up short. Seems strange to be mentioning a gig poster I made- a piece of art for a postponed gig that was to be a celebration of the 80th birthday of a legendary musician, while we’re all under the umbrella of a world being ravaged by a deadly disease. But that’s where we are right now.

I know as someone who makes art from home for a living, I exist in a slightly different situation than the rest of the world filled with people with real jobs. People whose livelihood is in dire conditions, where if they’re not at work, they’re not earning, and their savings start to run out, and things are scary.

And I’m here trying to promote art.

It’s a bizarre situation to be sure, but I just don’t know what else to do. I also have a family to support, a family who is dependent on my income, on my sales, on my livelihood. My livelihood where I make art for a living. A livelihood that doesn’t seem too relevant with so much chaos going on.

But then, I hear from people. I hear from people who have been going out of their way to express support for me and my livelihood. Who want to continue to buy art, to support what I do, to maybe find some normalcy, some beauty in all this chaos? I don’t fully know the reasons. But I do appreciate it, and it fills me with hope.

I know we’ll pull together through this difficult situation. That we’ll do our best to be safe, to be healthy, to take care of ourselves and our families, and each other. I want everyone to exist in their happiest self, and if that means saving their hard earned money to take care of what matters most, then I absolutely want them to do that. And I want you to do that. Please don’t buy a poster if it’s going to jeopardize the well being of your family. Take care of yourselves.

If you do happen to find yourself in an okay position and wish to continue to add to your art collection, to add a piece of art, add some color in this dark world we find ourselves in, or maybe you’re just rounding out the collection, I’m here. I’m here with posters, with art, and with a new gig poster, for a gig that never was. I’ll try to keep the normalcy going as best as I can.

Phil Lesh and Friends, 80th Birthday Celebration run at the Capitol Theatre (postponed until a later date) posters are five color screenprints. There is a foil variant for the show colorway which apparently has already sold out, but I understand at the time of this writing, show copies are still available. My artist variant colorways include a green and purple scheme. Both are available on paper and a metallic foil. The green comes in a brushed gold, the purple on a rainbow foil. See below for full details. I’ll also have a small number of hand embellished prints for those wanting something extra. See the storefront for details.

As always, I’ll publish the exact drop time for this coming Monday, March 30 to those subscribed to my newsletter. You can sign up in the sidebar.

Take care of yourselves. Be safe. Stay healthy. There’s always more art, but look after each other right now. I love you all.

First New Drawing of 2016 and #366DaysOfWinters.

by ncwinters on January 13, 2016

First new completed piece of the year, and a new project to go along with it!

So, I may have hinted on social media that my first new completed piece of the year is finished, but that piece in fact was begun last year. So this is in fact, my first new piece, started and completed in 2016. It is completed nested within a new project. A few years ago I started my 100 Drawings project. The goal was to create new work every day, with an attempt to complete 100 drawings in the span of a year. Needless to say, the project was slightly ambitious, and I believe it ended up taking around three years total to complete.

Well.

This year, I think I may actually be able to complete the original intended goal, and complete 100 NEW pieces within the span of 2016. Yep, I’m going for it. Again. But this time, I think it will happen. To up the ante, I’ve created a social media hashtag to document a new chunk of drawing progress to be completed EVERY SINGLE DAY. You can follow along with this madness by following the tag #366DaysOfWinters on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. I’ll post a new bit of drawing everyday and add this tag, with the most direct access point being through my Instagram page. Which, if you’re not following already, is be your best source to keep up with the art making I’m doing daily.

It’s an ambitious goal, to be sure, but one I’m confident I can achieve. Either way, I’ll be documenting the whole process for everyone to follow along with, which gives the added imperative of not failing publicly. Should be fun, either way. My goal is to post every of the 100 drawings goal pieces for sale up in my online shop, with an estimated retail of around $100-$300. The price of each piece will depend on size and complexity. I hope to see you along the journey, but for now, here’s “Another Time.”

Enjoy!

by ncwinters on May 3, 2015

I feel like clowns keep making their way into the art lately. It’s strange, I’m not…especially interested in them, they just seem to keep…appearing. Something I’ll have to meditate on later. Til then, enjoy “Humour When Possible.”
